Subsoil use issues to reassess

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

Committee on Environmental Policy, Nature Resources Utilization and Elimination of the Consequences of Chornobyl Catastrophe

 

Subsoil use-related problems to be reconsidered

At its gathering, the committee has reviewed the progress in works on the National programme for development of raw material base of Ukraine for the period through 2030.

A range of reports delivered by officials from the State Service of Geology and Mineral Resources of Ukraine (Derzhheonadra) was heard. The papers revealed hosts of problems throughout the industry including funding gaps in the programme, vicinal resourse development, lack of on-field extraction works in the presence of appropriate subsoil use permits, etc.

In view of the above, the committee stressed again the importance of its recommendations set out on September 18, 2012 under No.128/10 which had seemingly been put off, and put out new recommendations capable of bringing along the progress on the issues:

-         to step up elaboration and submission of the programme changes to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine,

-         to restore a secure state budget item (the special fund) to finance prospecting at the expense of subsoil use rental reallocation,

-         to define annual amounts of financing of the programme based on takings from granting and selling special subsoil use permits (licences),

-         to avoid delays in starting to finance  prospecting,

-         to lift the standstill period for the State Service of Geology and Mineral Resources of Ukraine to conduct scheduled inspections of businesses.

The committee prepared an appropriate letter of recommendation to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
